Brigham Young loved his children. He built a special room on the back of his home that was a gymnasium for his children. There were balls, ladders, hoops, weights, roller skates, marbles, etc, etc. for his children to play with.
As a child he wished for enrichment and fun. He loved dancing, music and theater when he was older and saw that his children took time to sing, participate in theater and enjoy dancing if they wished.
He treated his children with kindness, and they adored him.
